Very historic scenery! I sometimes wonder when I see an old cemetery if those who rest therein would even recognize their old hometown today.
Since some of those gravestones were from the seventeenth century, in the case of Concord, probably not! Thanks, WS.
Beautiful photos. I especially like the Enders Island pic.
Thanks, Yen. I love that Enders Island pic, too. Such a beautiful, peaceful place.
I love the photos, especially the battlefield. Nice visual!
I think the battlefield one with my honey in it is my favorite, too.
You picked some very interesting and lovely pathways. They all give of a sense of time and history.
Thank you, Robin.
Beautiful pictures! Love the color!
Not nearly as exotic as yours, Jiawei!
Love it! And I love how you always have such an interested take on the photo word!
Thanks, Leah. I love the picture of my husband at Yorktown. It has a haunting quality.
Oh I do want to travel to your part of the world soon. Till then, your lovely pics will have to do. Thanks!
We should change houses for a week or so, don’t you think? 😉
Wonderful photos. I love the path in the cemetery. So much story there.
One of the gravestones was of a slave who finally was able to buy his freedom. There is a long inscription on the gravestone. Part of it says, “Tho’ born in a land of slavery, he was born free. Tho’ he lived in a land of liberty, he lived a slave.” Concord and the surrounding area is such a historic and interesting place to visit. Thanks, Shary.
The photo of the Battlefield at Yorktown tells the long way to freedom and the price of freedom.
It is such an interesting place, Amy, the last important battle of the Revolutionary War.
Beautiful! It looks like the exact same photo for all locations. Is it suppose to be like that?
Something must be wrong wordpress! My recent post has the first photo in the post repeated where all the other photos should be.
Yikes, Jenny, I’ll take a look. Try it again, because others have commented on the other photos. Must be a WordPress glitch because when I looked at it yesterday, it was fine. I haven’t looked at it this morning.
Great pics. Are you traveling around the country? I’ve always wanted to visit Connecticut.
Susan thanks for you so kind and understanding comment on my post Orphaned.
These are from places we go to frequently, Julie. Since our sons live in Boston, we drive up there (12 hours) several times a year. Concord is just a stone’s throw away. My brother got us onto Enders Island because it’s private; there’s a monastery there. When my brother was a grad student doing marine studies, he had to check water samples there and made friends with the monks, so he has an “in” there. Yorktown is near us here in Virginia.
We stayed in Mystic once and were just down the road from Mystic Pizza, which was a good thing as I was seven months pregnant at the time.
I love Mystic and Stonington. We’ve spent a lot of time in both little towns.
